A Dream of Event Industry Success

Dreams do Come True

At the age of 12, I was riding my bike around the neighborhood and goofing off. I did not know up from down or left from right nevermind what I wanted to do with my entire life… Good thing our next guest is nothing like me. Donvil Collins had a clear vision of his future and where he wanted to go and he made it happen, becoming a leader in the video production and live streaming field before he even finished colleage. His story is the stuff of legend.

Donvil started his first business in technology at age 12 and by 14 was the youngest certified producer at “BronxNet”. Before the age of 18, he became a sought-after faith-based tv producer broadcasting to over 80 million worldwide viewers. EIGHTY MILLION VIEWERS.

Thinking he probably had more to accomplish, he started his corporate video production business VeeKast in 2006 while in his Sophomore year of film school and went on to work with organizations including TD Bank, United Way, and Malibu Rum. He has been featured in some of the leading event technology sites and was honored as the 2015 40 under 40 Rising Star and received a 2016 Wunderkinds Award by 914 INC Magazine.

Together, they gathered up their seven decades of combined experience in meeting and event planning and created a registration product that was built by planners, for planners. Their ethos is that every event deserves a solution that provides a seamless journey from registration to itineraries, meetings to payment. And on top of that, it does badges too!
